hour or so in ramallah. the way this event will work is both leaders, president obama and president milwaukahmoud abbl deliver short remarks and there will be questions. not a lot of questions really, just one question to each leader from each country's press corps. >> the shot you see on the right side of your screen is where we expect to see leaders coming out any moment now for this news conference. the president arrived first in tel aviv to a lot of waiting dignitaries and media who have been waiting for this trip since becoming president. he is coming there in a listening mode, now meeting with mahmoud abbas, in a listening mode. john king just reported to us, look, it's not a stalled peace process between the palestinians and the israelis. it is a dead peace process, he said. >> john king, yesterday we saw so many smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a co
the most i think. >> obama: israel has the unshakable support of the most powerful country in the world. >> hal: yeah, but enough about china, what about the u.s.? that's what they said at fox, basically. i'm kidding -- that's the obama never stands with israel! he probably meant iran. when he said that in his head he is like mouthing america but he's thinking north korea. >> emersia. >> hal: by the way they had a presidential election in emersia, and mitt romney won hands down. it only has two states though -- >> la jolla and where is his other house? >> hal: yeah when you sneeze instead of bless you, everyone says mercy. that's how it happens. my mom lives there. and this is the one when he is addressing, you know, the violence that palestinians experience while -- and balancing the violence that israelis experience. >> obama: it's not just when sudden violence against palestinians goes unpunished. it's not right to prevent palestinians from farming their lands, or displace palestinian families from their homes. neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. >>
of that country. "the washington post" has come out with an article today that questions whether or not the obama administration has a contingency plan two years into this conflict. the administration has been vague about what they want to do if a red line is crossed with chemical weapons or what the plan is moving forward. do you think that is because they don't want to release the plan to the public because it's classified or do you think they maybe don't have a plan? >> i hope it's because they don't want to release it to the public. i worry that they haven't formulated one. we always have to understand in the middle east, and i think it's taken the obama administration, it's taken the president and his team a longtime to realize that typically in the middle east we're not confronted with a good option and a bad option we are confronted by crummy options and awful options. and that's the situation in regard to syria, which on the one hand you have the iranian back bashar al-assad regime we. don't want to see iran increase its power in the region, on the other hand the rebels are a very mixed b

that ultimately affect the united states. >> what about the minimum wage in this country, howard? is $7.25 enough. lots of pushes to take that up to $9, as president obama has talked about. the average starbucks barista, according to glassdoor website, makes $8.78 an hour. >> well, that's a little misleading, but i'll come back to that. you know, i think the minimum wage issue is a double-edged sword. and what i would not want to see is the minimum wage go up and as a result of that, employers starting to hire less people or cutting people's hours. and you have to be very careful of the unintended consequences. on balance, i am a supporter of the minimum wage going up, but i think we've got to be very, very careful and be careful what we wish for, because some employers, and it could be a lot of them, will be scared away from hiring new people or creating incremental hours for part-time people as a result of that wage going up. so you've got to be very careful and this has to be very thought out. and i would say, in terms of the health care law, that's going to go into effect, there are significa
in many areas of the country. it helped people move into an advanced lifestyle and away from dependency. and we've drifted gradually through the bush years and into the obama years, in which those qualities of that program have been undermined. and president obama is overtly advocating relaxing some of the rules that mandate work requirements for some of the people that are involved heemplet he ihere.he's retreati. that's the wrong way. we have a group of senators, fine people, meeting in secret. maybe they're down the hall now. i don't know where they are. they're plotting right now to pass us an immigration plan. and we just can't wait to see what it is so we can just vote for whatever they decide we ought to have. and you know what they tell us? we can't get workers. we go go got to have foreign wo. we've never had more people on welfare. never had more people on food stamps. in 2001 we spent $20 billion on food stamps. last year we spent $80 billion on food stamps. it's gone up fourfold. but we're told there are not enough americans to do work. somehow this welfare office needs to b
to president obama about it "a bit." and regarding cyprus, the fed chair calls the situation "difficult" but not a risk to the u.s. financial system. now onto the situation in cyprus... the country needs $7.5 billion dollars asap. and it might not come from the ecb. yesterday, the european central bank reportedly signaled it's prepared to cut off funding to the mediterranean island -- causing a financial meltdown. a rescue could still come from russia or bank bondholders. cyprus has a supersized banking system often used by russian's to house money. it's a busy week for companies launching their initial public offerings...such as model n-- which rocketed up in value from the outset. in all---eight i-p-os this week---about seven more than the number last week. our cover story takes a look at why now.

public transportation and don't drive. that's smart growth. and the obama administration is gearing up to impose the smart growth on the country and that would be bad for america's suburbs. >> megyn: how would they do it, make us move from the suburbs to the city? most of the people who live in the suburbs like the suburbs and don't want to live in the city. how would they make us do it it? >> several plans, part is to stop people from moving to the suburbs in the first place and in the end it might get people who live in suburbs to head to the cities. last week the energy department released a series of reports that touted a new strategy for cutting back on carbon dioxide emissions. the idea to make all federal funding conditional on adherence to the smart growth principles. let's say the federal government is thinking of funding a new school or a new highway. well, if this idea goes through, the government would say, let's look at the population densely. a high population densely we'll give you federal money. if you don't you're not going to get the money and that would start challen

will note the various public reports that the obama administration is considering doing exactly that. this raised me to my final point. let's not lose sight of the reality that in this country, we have for some time entrusted the president with awesome powers and responsibilities as commander-in-chief. arsenalols the nuclear and he alone has the authority to use it. he alone has the constitutional authority, with certain limits, to deploy thousands of men and women in the u.s. military into hostility on the other side of the world. further, as we entrust the president to conduct war and authorize these of force against an individual, that presidential level decision brings with it a whole cadre of cabinet and subcabinet level national security advisers from across justicense, state, and departments, and the intelligence committee, who bring to the table different perspectives and engage in very lively, robust debate. i say only half jokingly that in 2009 in the then existing structure, when the most aggressive things the new president could do to promote credibility and ensure robust
home we're seeing new suggestions that president obama's second term honeymoon may already be over. a new poll shows half the country disapproves of the job that the president is doing, even as he continued his so-called charm offensive reaching out to republicans last week. it has apparently not stopped his slide in the polls which many believe led to the charm offensive to begin with and in fact, his poll numbers are getting more negative. here are some of the headlines in the last week or so. obama's approval drops as americans take a dimmer view of his economic policy. quote, after overhyping sequester, obama poll numbers stick. in recent days we read, obama's approval rate cratered in the past two months. and obama honeymoon may be over. and chris stirewalt editor of power play on foxnews.com live. the honeymoon is apparently over if the mainstream media declares it's so, it's so, i guess. here is the deal, they were going down, the fox news polls, the gallup news poll showed the president's numbers going down and then came the charm offensive, met with the republicans and pau
